I was goin' round the world
I was lookin' for somewhere
I was searchin' for someone
Who was gonna take me there

Didn't want to do it 'cause I knew what I'd find
You're really only livin' in a state of mind, yeah

I was thinkin' of the past
I was tryin' to rack my brain
I was looking at the future, looking at the future
I was tryin' to play the game

Didn't want to do it 'cause I knew what I'd find
You're really only livin' in a state of mind, yeah

Sometimes you get lost
Sometimes you get found
In a state of mind

Sometimes you're too high
Sometimes you're too down
It's just a state of mind

Didn't want to do it 'cause I knew what I'd find
You're really only livin' in a state of mind, yeah

Sometimes you get lost
Sometimes you get found
In a state of mind

Sometimes you're too high
Sometimes you're too down
It's just a state of mind

You think you know it all
Then you think that you know nothing
Can't dance, can't crawl, crawl
Maybe you better forget it

Didn't want to do it 'cause I knew what I'd find
You're really only livin' in a state of mind, yeah

Didn't want to do it 'cause I knew what I'd find
You're really only livin' in a state of mind, yeah

Didn't want to do it 'cause I knew what I'd find
You're really only livin' in a state of mind, yeah

State of mind
State of mind
State of mind
